Founded in 1989, The Community School is a private non-sectarian co-educational day school serving 30 students in grades 6 to 12. Our students are bright, highly motivated young people from 15 towns in central New Hampshire and western Maine.
We believe learning is a rigorous and joyful pursuit which calls on each individual’s talents and interests, and promotes appreciation of the interconnectedness of people and places. At The Community School, our mission is to support students on their individual learning paths within a caring and respectful community.
Students and teachers collaborate in small multi-disciplinary classes, at School Meeting, and in the school’s gardens and forests to build a healthy local community that contributes to a sustainable world. In preparation for college and meaningful work, students learn by doing, connect with nature, develop an ethic of stewardship, solve real problems, and provide service to others. Inquiries and applications are considered at any time, and it is not unusual for students to enter during the school year.
The Community School’s core values: Connect with nature, Honor the individual, Act responsibly with all people and places, Face challenge with courage, Experience education!
